SOLVED: Seafile-cli: QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display

HI

I am trying to install headless seafile-cli on the ARM system Helios4 with Openmediavault (OMV).

I am following the installation from the manual:
https://manual.seafile.com/build_seafile/linux.html

In the very end I am trying to start the the seafile client with

$PREFIX/bin/seafile-applet.sh

I then get the error message:

admin@helios4:~$ /usr/bin/seafile-applet.sh start
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display
Aborted

Am I starting a GUI version and not the headless version?
I am not sure how to get the headless seafile-cli started now.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Greeting, Chris

found this on https://www.tobiasheide.de/seafile-client-on-raspberry-pi/

choose a folder where to store the seafile client settings e.g ~/.seafile-client

mkdir ~/.seafile-client # create the settings folder
seaf-cli init -d ~/.seafile-client # initialise seafile client with this folder
seaf-cli start
